|Occupation||Author and environmentalist|
Jerry Yudelson (born in Greenwich, Connecticut) is environmentalist, and author, best known for publishing 14 green building and sustainable design books since 2006. Yudelson's work is focused on the long-term environmental impact that urban development has on climate change, resulting from greenhouse gas emissions caused by operating home and buildings.
Yudelson has a B.S. in engineering from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), an A.M. in water resources engineering from Harvard University, and a Master Of Business Administration from the University of Oregon. He was a Rotary Foundation Fellow for International Understanding for his graduate studies in West Germany at the Technical University in Aachen. He was a U.S. Public Health Service Trainee in environmental engineering science for Ph.D. studies at Caltech.
Yudelson was a pioneer in organizing Earth Day activities in 1970 on the Caltech campus. He taught some of the first university courses in the U.S. in the new field of environmental studies, while at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In 1972, he organized community opposition to a proposed convention center on the Monterey Bay headlands at Lighthouse Point in Santa Cruz, resulting in the cancellation of the project and eventually the creation of Lighthouse Field State Beach.
